  2. Log in to the spruce system
  3. Browse through and click a video file
  4. Click keyboard's TAB button until the video is highlighted

I am seeing the same behavior in Chrome and Firefox:
a) when the big central play/pause button is selected via keyboard, the spacebar operates as described
b) when the small play/pause button in the control bar is selected via keyboard, the spacebar works as required.

I took some time to try to fix the big button but was unsuccessful. I wonder if it is worth a bigger effort, since there is a working play button next in the tab order.

I'd like to close and mark this as a known issue based on Brian's comment, especially since this only affects the custom play button overlay/wide media player scope.

Sound good @davidschober ?
